. and then deval did the right thing by picking up the torch and working to make the law work even better. and it's because you guys had a proven model that we built the affordable care act on this template of proven bipartisan success. your law was the model for the nation's law. so let's look at what's happened. today the affordable care act requires insurance companies to abide by some of the strongest consumer protections this country has ever known. a true patients bill of rights. no more did he say crim naturing against kids with preexisting conditions.scriminating against kids with preexisting conditions. no more dropping your policy when you get sick and need it most. no more lifetime limits or restrictive annual limits. most plans now have to cover free preventive care, like mammograms and birth control. young people can stay on their parents' plans until they turn 26. all of this is in place right now. it is working right now. now, the last element of this began on october 1st. so when the affordable care act created a new marketplace for quality, private insurance plans for the 15% or
the massachusetts health care law. the same law that become the framework for the affordable care act. i don't remember conservatives complaining about the law then. back then everyone was all smiles, even this guy. a top official at the conservative think tank, the heritage foundation. look how happy he is. but now suddenly the heritage foundation is the group leading the charge against the president's health care law. it's even supported senator ted cruz's anti-obama care tour this summer. and today senator cruz continued that crusade at the headquarters for the heritage foundation. >> it is a particular privilege being here at heritage, heritage plays such an important role in helping articulate and defend conservative principles across this country. and in no fight has that been more apparent than in the fight over obama care. >> but republicans were on the other side of that fight just a few years ago. they've completely flip-flopped. now the whole right wing is against it. why? because president obama is for it. but he's come too far to back down now. >> and if if was hard doing it jus
into effect as the result of bigger waters flood insurance reform law. so i urge my colleagues in the senate to pass this bipartisan bill that was introduce by senator menendez and senator isakson that would delay the premium increases set to go into effect until after fema has done a study and provided congress with a plan to make the rates basically affordable. our families work so hard. they're trying to rebuild. and, frankly, they deserve nothing less. some homeowners, even as they do rebuild, have started seeing their rates increase. this would cause so many of our constituents to be forced out of their homes and communities that they love, that they lived in their whole lives. this is why the menendez-isakson bill is so critical and why i strongly urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support this commonsense legislation. now as we focus on providing communities with all of the resources they need to rebuild from sandy, the federal government is partnering with states and local governments, the private sector and academia to develop solutions that will protect us from the ne

this law work. they voted over 40 times to repeal the law. they shut down the government and threatened to force a default in order to stop it. they're rooting for failure. madam secretary, can you tell us what would be the impact on americans health insurance if republicans had been successful in their efforts to defund or repeal the affordable care act? >> well, i think that the estimates of the congressional budget office is that would have increased the deficit by about $110 billion in the first decade and close to a trillion dollars in the second decade. we know that we have 42 or 43 million americans without health insurance at all, some of them medicaid eligible and some over the medicaid eligibility. 30 governors so far, republicans and democrats, have declared their support for moving ahead with medicaid expansion, but absent that, the affordable care act, those folks would be without any kind of health security. and in the private market, what we know is it takes a real toll. but i'd say the biggest issue is not just the financial toll, not the community toll, not the country
be grandfathered in. >> she's lying because the grandfather clause for those plans, right in the law, had an old list of exceptions that made the grandfather clause meaningless. compare it with the grandfather clause for unions in the very next paragraph where there, that is guaranteed period, as the president said, without the long string of fine print to make it meaningless. stuart: got it. mr. waxman is on, getting political, go. >> he said tens of millions would lose their insurance, but in fact everybody in this country is going to have action cess to health insurance because they won't be discriminated against. they said that it would explode the deficit and yet the reputable organizations like the budget office says it's going to save 100 billion dollars over ten years. so we've had a litany of objections from the republicans about the affordable care act which has driven this to such a frenzy, they even closed the government. so, now, we have you before the committee and you're being asked, i suppose later you'll be asked about the website, but let me pursue this question about individua

care law that i think is bad for patients as well as doctors and nurses to take care of them as well as the taxpayers this -- the problems with the bad side are only the tip of the expert. the law itself is fatally flawed in terms of keeping your doctor and all of these cancellations of policies. gerri: i will show some numbers. we have been running a tally on the cancellations. i have something. if you add up all these numbers from all over the country, hundreds of thousands of people getting cancellations. kathleen sebelius was saying that there not cancellations. if they are not, what are they? >> there cancellations, and there are more than some. more and more of these grand father plans will have to make enough changes to comply that there will be canceled, no longer legal for sale which is bad. >> the regulations they wrote after words. the tower of regulations. they've really got very restricted in the regulations when the president said if you like your insurance to keep it. really only if the white house likes your insurance you can keep their insurance. the white house is n

, chairman upton, that this is the law? you know, they have this whole thing, this is the existing law, this is the current law that passes the supreme court, blah, blah, blah. this is the law, and worry not going to change the law? >> well, how did they change the law for the employer mandate for a year? it happens, that's the way it goes. they are given lots of waivers. let's see regulations, delayed or imposed that say, hey, if you like the health insurance and you were insured earlier this year, can you keep it, worry not going to impose that penalty on you later on. >> i am staggered to lead, there are tweets about this, fred, and other things that valerie jared, the top adviser and jake carney are now blaming insurance companies for can selling plans within they are forced to by the obama care mandates. >> are you exactly right. it not their fault and, you know, we knew early on, private and mutual, cancelled a million policy, i think they announced that a year, a year-and-a-half ago something like that for people across the country. so they knew what they were getting into. the
to discontinue the plans that people had when the law was passed, yes or no? >> not when the law was passed. no, sir. that's the grandfather clause. >> that's because the plans existed prior to passage of the law are grandfathered in as you have said? >> that's correct. >> so if an insurance company is no longer offering a certain plan, that's because that insurance company made a decision to change their policies and that caused them to take away the grandfather status from their insurance purchasers, is that right? >> that's correct. >> now, madame secretary. i want you to submit for the record a statement of what it is we can do about insurance companies that run around canceling the policies of their people and i don't have time to get the answer but i want to get a very clear statement from you as to what you can do so we can take some skin off some folks that have it coming. madame secretary, it's my understanding that these decisions of a business character are most common in the individual insurance market and that much turnover already exists and existed prior to the enactment of the l
trade, pledging to attract more foreign investment into the united states as his failing healthcare law continues to not only frustrate millions of americans, but in some cases also injury them. those who are losing their healthcare plans because of obamacare. nearly all republican, and a growing number of democratic lawmakers, are now demanding either a delay of the individual mandate or an extension of the enroll am period. and -- enrollment period and the public is not pleased. the president is being pummeled in the latest polls, his job approval rating hit all-time low in newest "wall street journal" poll, just from% of americans a-- 42% of americans approving of his job performance compared to 51% disapproving. 2 two major polls with almost the same trend. gallup tracking poll, and fox news poll, the approval rating has dropped further. only 41%, 53% disapprove. the president's under war unders are not surprised perhaps with reports of up to two million people receiving cancellation notices from their health care insurance providers, new report reveals that obama administration kne
. that is why allowing insurers to continue offering deficient plans next year is such a bad policy. the law says that all plans except those that were grandfathered in 2010, must meet the new consumer protection standards. if we don't enforce this policy, insurance companies can continue offering flimsy coverage that disappears when people actually need it and no one should want that. it is understandable that there will be a focus today on what isn't working, but we must also remember what is working. the health insurance plans that are being offered in the exchanges are good plans. the premiums are much lower than expected. 60% of the uninsured individuals shopping in the new marketplaces will be able to get coverage for less than $100 per month. half of the young adults will be able to get coverage for less than $50 per month. and since congress adopted the affordable care act, health care costs across the whole economy have grown at their lowest level in decades. the success of the affordable care act is due to the efforts of many people, but one individual more than any other is respon
the health care law. >> if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. these folks need to stop scaring everybody. if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. nobody's going to force you to leave your health care plan. if you like your doctor, you keep seeing your doctor. i don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your health care. but the point is i don't want insurance company bureaucrats meddling in your health care either. if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep it. if you're one of more than the 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. >> well, now, that promise is proving impossible to keep and we're hearing from people who buy their insurance on the individual market like self-employed realtor debra who recently got a notice from her insurer saying her policy will no longer be offered because of the new requirements in the law. >> all i want is what i currently have. i want to keep my doctors, and i would like to have lower premiums. >> the health care law require
clearly, there is a demand. we need to get information to people about the law. this is the law, this is not any longer a debate. it was a law passed by both houses of congress, signed by the president of the united states, upheld by the supreme court. the president was reelected. it is the law. and people have benefits and rights under that law, and we've got to get that information so they can make good choices for themselves and their families. >> well, thank you. it is the law, and, frankly, i find it disconcerting that my republican colleagues have done nothing but root for this law to fail for the last three and a half years. and now there's a big show here of being upset at problems with the website and keeping people from signing up for coverage fast enough. so i would just say to my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, you're really on the wrong side of history here. the website will be fixed and millions of americans will be able to get quality affordable health insurance coverage through the affordable care act. and again, i thank you for being here today, madam
as the president stood in boston's historic faneuel hall where mitt romney signed into law the health care plan that became the prototype for obama care. >> there's no denying it. right now the web site is too slow. team people have gotten stuck. and i am not happy about it. and i take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed asap. >> mr. obama argued romney care wasn't perfect at first, either. >> enrollment was extremely slow. within a month, only about 100 people had signed up. >> but there are also big ditcheses. former romney aides like ex-spokesman ryan williams are disgusted with the comparisons. >> what do you make of that? >> pathetic. >> romney had the late senator ted kennedy by his side, a bipartisan achievement the president wasn't able to match. >> president obama has not done a good job managing the process. he has not hired competent people to run this program. i think we're seeing the disastrous results of that right now. >> romney also rejected the comparison in a statement, saying "had president obama actually learned the lessons of massachusetts health care the inst
also alleged she's barred by law from enrolling in obama care. mo are on that in a moment. cnn is it reporting the administration is pressuring insurance executives to keep quiet, which would be an illegal abuse of power, if it turns out to be true. which part of this does not resemble some of what happened in 1973-'74, including a president whose operative explanation keeps changing. van -- >> nobody is losing their right to health care coverage. for the vast jon of people who have health care coverage that works, you can keep it. for the fewer than 5% of american that is buy insurance on your own, you will be getting a better deal. >> before -- let me just point out, this is the man who spent three years and thousands of references to no one will lose their health insurance. today for the first time, he began to modify that blanket commitment, but i suspect you don't totally agree. >> there's so much wrong on what you said, it will take the entire show to try to correct the record. i will say this. to even mention nixon in the middle of all this is to put the hype in hyperbol

, the way the law is written -- >> it's a yes or no. let's say you're wrong on that. yes or no, if you're wrong, will you? >> i don't want misinformation to american public. i don't want to give misinformation -- >> i want you to research -- if you're wrong -- will you go into the exchanges? >> if i'm wrong -- >> if you can, will you? that's a yes or no. >> reporter: those are the two being pushed out by the rnc rapid response team, circling in on the answer by sebelius where she says whatever, that is something which you're ever before a congressional committee you never want to say because it will go viral quite quickly. it's a very contentious issue on capitol hill right now because a lot of members are going to enroll staffs in the d.c. exchange and they want to have the same standard for the administration and that's why she got hit hard with that. overall from conversations i've had with republicans and democrats, the general consensus is at a sebelius kept her head above water and took fault for what happened and accepted blame. she said it was a debacle. she said it wasn't acce
is that pledge only counted until the health care law was signed in march of 2010 only for policies that were in effect before then. any way, these policies are lousy. >> there's two things. there was no extenuating circumstances when you said you can keep your plan. he didn't add a clause. in fact, he said clearly you can keep your plan. he said it once. he said it a thousand times. this wasn't a minor pledge. it was central to passing the law. it is sort of like the first president bush saying no new taxes. he broke that pledge. at least he had the honesty to tell everybody he was breaking the pledge. the president pledged this and never admitted he was going to break it. there's millions of people going to lose it, at least 15 million, including people in the small business community. many small business people are going to lose their plans too. >> we're going to get to that. dr. emanuel, the "wall street journal" reported this weekend that you in fact were part of a debate inside the white house at the time about whether or not this claim you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor w
